LEAD Program Evaluation: Recidivism Report

“This report describes findings from a quantitative analysis comparing outcomes for LEAD participants versus “system-as-usual” control participants on shorter- and longer-term changes on recidivism outcomes, including arrests (i.e., being taken into custody by legal authority) and criminal charges (i.e., filing of a criminal case in court). Arrests and criminal charges were chosen as the recidivism outcomes because they likely reflect individual behavior more than convictions, which are more heavily impacted by criminal justice system variables external to the individual.”
